Cold weather is upon us, but building must continue in
order to take care of the unusual demands for greater pro-
duction. Because of the shortage of building mechanics,
winter construction must not only be safe, but require the
least possible labor.

Kahn Pressed Steel Joists and Studs meet your require-
ments fully. All the labor has been performed in the factory

no cutting, no fitting, no riveting required at the building
sitc. Hy-rib Metal Lath is quickly attached by merely bend-
ing down the prongs on the members.

Freezing weather cannot endanger the strength of Kaha

Pressed Steel. It provides a permanent, fireproof, vermin-

proof construction, economical and quickly built. Requires

no forms, no centering, no special equipment. Successfully

used in schools, apartments, hotels, stores, public buildings,
